No job-lock in Jason’s world; he is living Nancy Pelosi’s American dream.
We picked up the story from The Blaze:
A California food stamp recipient who admitted that he spends all his time surfing and hanging out with friends on Thursday refused an offer of help to find a job.
Jason Greenslate, 29, gained notoriety last August when he was captured on camera using food stamps to buy lobster.
Greenslate went on Fox News Thursday and said he hasn’t worked in a year because he believes practicing with his band is his real job.
Fox host Sean Hannity noted that Greenslate’s lifestyle, which also includes a Cadillac Escalade and strip clubs, is all done on someone else’s dime.
Hannity asked the surfer where he thinks the money comes from to pay for his food stamps and health care.
“Government; taxes; us; the people,” Greenslate said.
“Not you, because you’re not paying taxes,” the host responded.
Hannity noted that Californians are taxed at an enormous rate, nearly 60 cents of every dollar going toward the government, adding that Greenslate doesn’t seem to be very grateful for his subsidized lifestyle.
“You’re taking their money and you just don’t seem to care,” he said.
“Who says I don’t care?” Greenslate asked, saying he was “thankful.”
“I want to thank the United States of America, and the situation — the way things are set up,” Greenslate said, adding that he’ll pay back the taxpayers when his band makes the big time.
Hannity went for broke: “If I could get you a job that would pay you $80,000 a year driving a truck in North Dakota, would you take it?”
Greenslate paused for a moment to think about it: “No.” [The Blaze]
Guess that settles the whole, Does art imitate life, or does life imitate art? argument.
Who knows, Jason and his band, Rat Life, might make it. Then he and his friends will all be able to pile into the Escalade and jam on over to Staples Center and rock out to some solidly menacing tunes.
Yeah, it probably isn’t going to happen but, like, get back to Jason on his 39th birthday. Meantime, who’s sweating it? Jason’s just rolling with “the United States of America, and the situation,” dude.
Lobster anyone? You’re paying for it.
